Tamiyaclub Free Movies

Here you will find movies by Tamiya and other manufacturers over the years. These movies have never been featured on the web in this form, these have been painstakingly 'restored' by Tamiyaclub to as close as we get to the quality of the original new movies. This process is on going and the movies feature will continue to be enhanced and in some cases replaced with completely new versions as they become available to us.

These movies movies have been made available to Tamiyaclub.com from a number of sources, but a special thanks must go out to member LunchRocs for donating the vast majority. If you contact him he can supply many of the movies featured on DVD. Over time this section will fill with the early promotional movies from Tamiya and hopefully other manufacturers so please check back regularly.

Please Note:
They may NOT hosted on any public website
They may NOT be linked to remotely from other websites
They may NOT be downloaded for distribution for sale in any form.

Official Sand Scorcher Vid 
added: 1/12/2006 8:28:18 PM
Short, sweet and one of my favourite SRB videos. :)
Just to show that Tamiyas don't only run on the sand, this one is shot at their 'off road' track. Some of the rocks on this thing my Clod crawler would have problems with, just shows how far materials, technology and experience have bought the hobby. 30 years on from this film and we've got a generation of 'off road' buggies that your have to walk around the track before hand removing any loose stones, twigs, leaves and grit that is the 'wrong size' - lol, progress!

Another remastered film from the lunch rocs collection, apologies for the quality, but I can't put back what isnt there ;) I'm not sure these things were ever great quality even when they were made!

Official Vanquish Vid 
added: 1/12/2006 7:05:13 PM
What happens when you take out all the fancy cool looking metal bits from the Avante and replace them with plastic bits? You end up with a better model, apparently ;) Shame the body was one more step down the Sci Fi spaceship line that tamiya was pushing

Is it just me or does tha narrator sound like he's go indigestion. Its as though he keeps stoping to stifle a burp.

Official Terra Scorcher Vid 
added: 1/11/2006 9:26:25 PM
You don't see this vid of one of Tamiya unsung heros many places on the web. I guess its because its not as glamourous as a lot of thier models. That said I had one of these for while, packed with hopups out of the box and a few more optional it actually made a real nice model. From the look of the video it also handles pretty well :) Original movie thanks to Lunch Rocs.

Official Tamiya Falcon Video 
added: 12/21/2005 10:36:24 PM
Both easy to build and economical to run....hands up all those that had a falcon as their first introduction to Tamiya models.

Why is it there are sooo many Falcon rear plastic dog bone sets still knocking around - did these things never break?

Official Monster Beetle Video 
added: 12/3/2005 3:57:31 PM
Another restored video from the LuchRocs set and its a classic!

Must admit was never a great fan of the Monster Beetle for many years, just thought all the proportions looked wrong, but then I finally got myself a runner and was converted instantly. These things are just a blast to drive as this video shows. Enjoy.

Official Boomerang Video 
added: 11/16/2005 8:56:59 PM
Named after that formidable weapon from downunder - The Boomerang.

Cheesy music and voice over aside, this one looks like it could have been shot at one of our tamiyaclub meetings - actually I think the ones we produce are quite a bit better now :)

Hard to believe it was the best part of 20 years ago now....

Official Gallop II Video 
added: 11/13/2005 7:58:37 PM
Another video from our man in Kuwait, Marwan.

BE WARNED This video contains bad 1980's Tron style visuals!

OK its another Kyosho one, on this Tamiya site, but I think variety and being able to compare what Tamiya were up against on the track (and in the media) is a good thing.:) I put my hands up - I'd heard the name but never really seen one in the flesh and now I have, it seems like a very interesting beast. Front shocks mounted horzontally across the front of the body and 4WS steering in a 4WD buggy. Technically it all looked great although judging by the fact, that only one other manufacturer I know ever tried it in a buggy because 'they thought it was a good idea' and the fact that the buggy world is not all 4 wheel steering these days I'm guessing the system was pants. (feel free to use the comment section below to correct me on this)

As Sulu says, 'the Gallop was good, but the Gallop II is superior' - who would have thought it!

Official Blackfoot Video 
added: 11/12/2005 9:52:12 PM
Another vid from the LunchRocs DVD collection. This time its the Blackfoot. What a great looking model in motion, and so much more stable than its height should allow. How does it do that?

And remember

...the Blackfoot, still performing after the tracks run out...

Official Optima Video 
added: 11/11/2005 9:38:38 PM
Just to show this section won't be all Tamiya, heres a great vintage video of the Optima, sent in by a kind visitor all the way from Kuwait, called Marwan. Cheers mate :)

Obviously they shopped at the same music store as Tamiya, and has the added comedy value of straight Japanese to American voice over (is it just me or does this guy sound like Sulu off Star Trek?) Right from the first heading were its titled 'The Winningest' and continued through with quotes like '...so low it even looks fast sitting still...' and '...suspension eliminates hippity hoppity bounce... '

Official Tamiya 959 Video 
added: 11/10/2005 9:30:55 PM
Imagine the scene, 14 years old, staning in the middle of the model shop gazing up at the screens and watching this classic. 'The ultimate in scale, performance and realism from Tamiya Plastic Modelling company...'
